Just reccieved my test results over the phone can someone please help inerpret them.
I have not taken levothyroxine for about 2 months (since my first lab results also shown below) when I asked if I should continue taking my 50mg levothyroxine the doctor said...I suppose so. Not very firm advice. Anyone have any advice on if the 50mg dose is appropriate?
Lab results today

TSH: 8.6 (0.35-50)

Doctor just called me back with a Neurophil Count ....which is 1.4 and should start 2....apparently it suggest I have a viral infection or illness and suggested I need more bloods done and a chest x-ray.... ???
